Large N Field Theories, String Theory and Gravity

- O. Aharony, S. Gubser, J. Maldacena, H. Ooguri, Y. Oz
- Physics
- 14 May 1999

We review the holographic correspondence between field theories and string/M theory, focusing on the relation between compactifications of string/M theory on Anti-de Sitter spaces and conformal field… Expand

The D4–D8 brane system and five dimensional fixed points

- 20 May 1999

Abstract We construct dual Type I' string descriptions to five dimensional supersymmetric fixed points with E N f +1 global symmetry. The background is obtained as the near horizon geometry of the… Expand

D-branes on Calabi-Yau spaces and their mirrors

We study the boundary states of D-branes wrapped around supersymmetric cycles in a general Calabi-Yau manifold. In particular, we show how the geometric data on the cycles are encoded in the boundary… Expand

Dynamics of N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories in three-dimensions

We study the structure of the moduli spaces of vacua and superpotentials of N = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories in three dimensions. By analyzing the instanton corrections, we compute the exact… Expand

Strong coupling dynamics of four-dimensional $N = 1$ gauge theories from M-theory fivebrane

It has been known that the fivebrane of type IIA theory can be used to give an exact low energy description of N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories in four dimensions. We follow the recent M theory… Expand

Supergravity and large N noncommutative field theories

- 29 September 1999

We consider systems of Dp-branes in the presence of a nonzero B field. We study the corresponding supergravity solutions in the limit where the branes worldvolume theories decouple from gravity.… Expand

Supersymmetric cycles in exceptional holonomy manifolds and Calabi-Yau four-folds

We derive in the SCFT and low energy effective action frameworks the necessary and sufficient conditions for supersymmetric cycles in exceptional holonomy manifolds and Calabi-Yau four-folds. We show… Expand

Supergravity description of non-Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield branes

We construct supergravity solutions that correspond to N Dp-branes coinciding with N Dp-branes. We study the physical properties of the solutions and analyse the supergravity description of tachyon… Expand

Supergravity Description of Non-BPS Branes

We construct supergravity solutions that correspond to N Dp-branes coinciding with N Dp-branes. We study the physical properties of the solutions and analyse the supergravity description of tachyon… Expand

Relativistic hydrodynamics with general anomalous charges

- Physics
- 23 November 2010

We consider the hydrodynamic regime of gauge theories with general triangle anomalies, where the participating currents may be global or gauged, abelian or non-abelian. We generalize the argument of… Expand
